    4/3 and m4/3 ---> NEX adapters

    Any experience with these adapters? Aperture?

    If there was a way to control the aperture these adapters would be incredible. Can you imagine using the 20mm f1.7 on the NEX!

    here's the cv 25/0.95 4/3 lens on the NEX - too bad it can't cover the sensor.

    another user said that infinity couldn't be achieved with the adapters, so he made one.

    For some of these pictures you also can use a $23 Fujian 25mm/1.4

    Isn't the bigger question how do you focus the m43 lenses? Aren't they focus-by-wire?

    Cheers,

    Isn't it simpler to buy an e-pl2?

    Yeah, the real issue is that m4/3 lenses are focus by wire, so there isn't currently a way to focus them at all, whether it be manual or AF.

    Hot, sometimes your posts can be infuriating! Perhaps not intentionally, but infuriating nonetheless. Please explain what you mean by this, as I know of no way to focus the m43 lenses that are focus-by-wire.

    Help us out here!

    Cheers,

    It works ... but I must make it perfect ;-)

    First I have to plant my 1.000.000 flowers, cut my 6 trees into small pieces, renew my biotop ...

    Using brain - you can find a simple solution ...

    Today I tested it with ---> "NEX5 + Canon 50mm / 1.8 II"

    The same lens designed for FF - once on NEX, once on FF: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2011/0...ested-on-both/
